Tennis player Kei Nishikori, the 20th ranked player in the world recently defeated tennis superstar Roger Federer at the 2014 Sony Open in the quarterfinals of the event in Miami, Florida only one day after beating the number 4 ranked David Ferrer. In beating these two opponents he earned the attention of tennis experts throughout the world and his peers, most notably Roger Federer who made the prediction that he will soon be in the top 10 rankings for men's singles.

For many in the tennis world the recent improvement has been confounding until one looks at the fact that he has a new coach, the 1989 French Open Champion who has changed his mental approach and helped him improve his hitting technique, in particular his backhand stroke. Kei Nishikori is now a more aggressive and feisty player who will fight through adversity and not give up on any points. 
 
His new playing style is driving opponents crazy just as his coach Michael Chang used to do when he was playing which made him a fan favourite at almost every tournament in which he competed. Sometimes the media becomes too impressed with one win as it might just be a bad day but defeating two players ranked in the top five in the world is no fluke and is more representative of a player who is on the precipice of becoming one of the elite tennis players on the circuit.

The next big thing in tennis might be Kei Nishikori and his recent performance in Miami suggests that he is ready to be a star on the tennis circuit.
